Gardening & Grounds Maintenance...


Gardening If your property has a garden, then it is usually accepted that a tenant is liable for keeping the garden presentable, provided tools are left for this purpose. You can reasonably expect the tenant to mow the lawns, maybe a little bit of weeding, but it’s rare that it goes beyond this.

If you have a prize garden with rare or delicate bushes or shrubs or even a garden that needs constant pruning then you may consider arranging a gardener to attend the property on a regular basis just to keep things in tip top shape. Normally the cost of this would be met by the Landlord rather than the tenant.

Regular garden maintenance in between tenancies is always advisable.
